Man Gets 132 Years For His Role In Home Invasion Where Three Women Were Raped, Three Men Hurt
A Tennessee man has been sentenced to more than a century behind bars for his role in a violent home invasion in which six people were assaulted.
Giorgio Lakeith Jennings, 33, was sentenced to 132 years in prison, according to a news release from the Shelby County District Attorney's Office. The terms of the sentence required 126 of those years to be served without the possibility of parole.
The North Memphis man was convicted of 22 felonies last November in a January 2011 home invasion in the Berclair area of Memphis, according to a November press release from the district attorney's office.
Jennings, along with two unidentified men, had guns and broke into a home where six people were present. All six were brutally attacked by Jennings and his accomplices.
“Three women aged 21 to 25 were sexually assaulted; Two male victims, aged 21 and 26, were shot in the right hand," prosecutors said, noting that "a 25-year-old man was pistol whipped in the attack."
During the robbery, Jennings and his companions stole two video game systems, knives, a bow, a spear, and medieval swords.
Jennings was identified as a suspect based on DNA and some stolen items found in his bedroom. A warrant was issued for his arrest in 2014, and he was arrested in 2017 while incarcerated in St. Louis for an unrelated crime.
Jennings also has a sexual assault case pending in Las Vegas, officials note.
He was found guilty of six counts of aggravated rape, five counts of aggravated robbery, three counts of aggravated assault, three counts of aggravated assault, three counts of aggravated kidnapping, three counts of aggravated burglary, and use of a firearm in one count of committing one dangerous crime.
In the unlikely event that he is released from prison, Jennings will be placed on the violent sex offender registry and community supervision for the rest of his life.
The other two men involved have not been identified, but "John Doe warrants" have been issued based on their DNA profiles, reports WMC-TV.
